[GreenYes] Re: VHS tape recycling


Ann-

You might contact: http://tropicalmedia.com/vidtaprecycle.html

See this article from Grist (2004):
http://www.grist.org/advice/ask/2004/06/17/umbra-film/ also. They mention
GreenDisk in there and that they deGauss tapes and send them out for
surveillance/security tapes. However, I went to their site and they don¹t
say anything about this anymore. So I sent an email to see if this service
is kaput. Hopefully I¹ll at least get an intelligent response (like, no one
uses VHS anymore). Will report back.
